  1. Totally agree with the comments about storage. I think this is even more of a difference if you are in a hotel room for a few days and keep your clubs with you. I was able to unpack my bag and fold it in half and stuff it out of sight for a few days. I just got back from my first trip using my Club Glove bag and was VERY happy with my choice. I flew Southwest and was not charged for the bag. They did make a comment (only the flight leaving) about not being insured since it was a soft case. I took off the heads to my driver and 3/4 wood a suggested and used a Stiff Arm for extra protection. Plenty of space to put my shoes in the side pocket and stuff in some extra towels, rain jacket, and plenty of balls. Put some laundry in it for the trip home. Can’t recommend this bag enough!

  2. Nothing too exciting, but after my recent trip to Florida and getting our round cut short due to crazy rain and storms, a golf umbrella is on the list. Not that it would have made much of a difference last week (had to come in because of lightning) but would have been nice to be a littler dryer. Got another outing in 2 weeks and rains every year. Want to be prepared this time! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Some small purchases lately that I have failed to report: -Pack of Kirkland gloves from Costco. Heard a lot of people mention them on here and the recent MGS report gave them some credit so I figured I give them a shot. With my luck, if I didn’t get them when I saw them the first time they wouldn’t be there the next time. Still unopened so I have t tried them out yet. Some “essentials” for my trip to Orlando coming up next week. -Club Glove stiff arm for the travel bag -Club Glove towel pack. I know it’s just a towel but I’m prettY pumped to finally get one. -Under Armour Iso-Chill glove in navy. Despite most reviews, I was a fan of the Cool switch glove they came out with a few years ago. It’s now past it’s lifespan and was looming for something good for the warmer weather. I had a coupon I could use while ordering the 2 items above so figured I’d add it to my cart. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Played yesterday on the first sunny/no rain day we have had in a long time. Rough round overall but I like that I now can at least understand what I'm doing wrong when things go bad. The issue is learning to be more consistent and actually fixing it haha. Towards the end of the round there was some glimmers of hope. On a par 3, #17 I chose to go with my 8i and hit a crisp 170 yards. Sadly I ruined par with a bad putt, but I was happy with the initial shot!
  5. Great break down. Puts things in a different light compared to the usual stats most of us look at. This is why I stopped playing the the e6 Softs over a year ago. The price point was around $30 (if I remember correctly) but I wasn’t impressed with their durability. At the same time I was mainly playing the SuperSofts that were $10 cheaper and lasted longer. I will add that back the I also played the yellow e6 Softs that were a glossy/somewhat sparkly finish. Got worn out easily. I’m testing the e12 Softs in Matte Green and like the finish with these a lot more. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. That’s on my list for this year! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Arranged my first lessons ever and start this afternoon! Pretty excited! Technically it was with a GG gift card I got from my parents a few years ago for lessons and finally getting to it. It will be a miracle if I leave the store without some new gear... so the lessons might lead to another posting. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. The Bolts not only losing but getting swept in the first round? WOW! Pens got swept by the Islanders too... what is happening?!?! Meanwhile, as a Devils fan I’m focusing on who we will take with the number one pick Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Where did you play in Hilton Head? I will probably be there in September for a work conference. They usually do an outing at a local course so I’m excited to see where they pick. Might try and get there a day early and play beforehand as well! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  11. Huge day for Tiger. And to think, the season just began (sorta). Who knows what else we can see this year. I saw that viewership ratings were up 5% compared to last year. I’d be interested to know if the timing held that back from being an even bigger increase. Whatever your thoughts are on Tiger winning, you have to admit, we witnessed history today.

  12. So here we go (finally) with my Stage 1 feedback! First off, I’d like to thank MGS for giving me the chance to take part in the testing and supplying us testers with a case of fresh new balls to work with. Also, thank you to Bridgestone for partnering with MGS to making this possible. I was really excited to get picked to be an ‘official’ tester and to be a part of what MGS does for all of us in the community. My name is Conor, originally from the East Coast but have lived in the Indianapolis area for the last 6 years after moving for work reasons. I started taking a more serious interest in golf 2 years ago which has become my major hobby. I get to the range when possible (closest one is about a mile away which is nice) and try to get on the course a few times a month. However, the most important thing to me is our growing family (a toddler almost 3 and twins under 1) so I try to find a nice balance. I will say though, my daughter does love going to the “golf ball store” which makes any golfing dad happy! About My Game Like I said I have been playing for 2 solid years, so this will be my 3rd year season into the game. I started with some of the usual issues as any beginner does but had a major slice. After lots of practice, adjusting grip and working a bit with my father-in-law (long time golfer) on my swing mechanics learning to relax, I was able to straighten things out pretty well. Yes, I still have the occasional slice but they are less frequent. Getting my ball straight consistently has been my major focus in the past but now I am looking to get more distance (something I have been pretty happy with since the start but want to improve). What’s In The Bag: Driver- TaylorMade M2 D-Type Stiff at 9.5* /GP MCC+4 Mid-size 3-4 FW Cobra F6 at 14.5* draw / KURO KAGE Black Graphite Stiff shaft / GP MCC+4 Mid-size 4H Callaway Rogue Stiff (stock grip) Irons- 4-AW Callaway Steelhead XRs Stiff SW- Callaway X S-grind 56* (stock grip) Putter- Odyssey White Hot RX V-Line Fang (stock grip) Check out my WITB to see my setup: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/applications/tapatalk/index.php?/topic/30808-Ronoc’s-WITB-2019-Setup Ball choice – Currently I game the Callaway SuperSofts mostly due to cost and having been gifted a few sets of them; both all white cases and the multi-colored/yellow sets too. I actually enjoyed using the yellow/orange colored balls since I had a bad habit of losing a lot of balls for a while so the colored helped finding them. However, as I have mentioned in previous posts, I am looking to change my ‘official ball of choice’ this year. I feel like the SS have left me wanting more in the ball. As my swing has been a bit more controlled and speed is getting better, they just seem too soft. I want a soft ball, but not like these marshmallows (as some consider them). Since I am still learning and adjusting more of my game I am not looking to shell out $40+ for a case of balls that I could lose faster than I’d like to. I actually tried out the e6 Softs about a year ago so I am really excited to see how the e12s compare. I bought 2 cases when they were on sale at DSG as a promo if you bought two. I actually went with the yellows and thought they were OK overall. Didn’t find them anymore durable than my usual SS and wasn’t a fan of the feel off my driver. First Impressions Compared to the old e6s, this initial appearance of the packaging and balls were a major upgrade. The e6 Softs were in a unappealing orange and black look that I wasn’t a fan of. The e12s are now in a nice gold look with the color of the ball filling out the ‘e12’ logo. (Pics to come of packaging) The balls themselves are a sweet matte finish. I selected to go with the “alien green’ as some called it, but officially called “Matte Green.” You can press your nail into the ball and has a little give, but nothing as squishy compared to the SS. (Pics of balls to come) Once the weather improves, I will totally be hitting up my home course’s new short game setup they put in to judge wedge and chipping play along with putting. My first round will be within the next week most likely and will be sure to put these in play! Hoping that these will give me something to upgrade to but also as an option that won’t break the bank (retails around $29.99).
  13. Love the lunarlons! Have had a pair of a previous model for 3+ years and love wearing them. Super comfortable, feel like they are still new, and great support. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Finally went with the S20 but haven’t had a chance to use it yet but I’m really excited. Of course DSG just dropped the price on it again... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
